We know one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, and we understand the thrill of bargain hunting! Come to Stanford’s monthly Junktique Market and rummage, hunt and seek treasures to your heart’s content. You may find something that fills you with nostalgia, or better still, something you didn’t even know you needed!

If you would like to become a vendor, please contact office@stanfordinfo.co.za to book. Free stand for registered charities.

Stanford Street Festival @ Queen Victoria Street, Stanford
Dec 16 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Stanford Street Festival @ Queen Victoria Street, Stanford

Walk the Main Street without worrying about cars to view more than 150 stalls selling everything from hand crafted silver jewellery to antiques and collectables, wooden sunglasses to wire and metal work, children’s and vintage clothes to linen, bric-a-brac to handmade toys, handmade jewellery to Christmas cards and gifts, essential oils, soap, handmade chocolates and much, much more. It’s all there waiting for you.

Last year an estimated 4,500 people enjoyed all that the Festival had to offer and we’re expecting even more this year. Spend some time sampling the produce of our local wine estates along with some from as far away as Stellenbosch and Worcester and we haven’t forgotten the beer drinkers either with Birkenhead being on show and we hope a number of micro-breweries as well. For the bon viveur there’s a chance to enjoy a goodly helping of Cap Classique and oysters along with the opportunity to sample international prize winning cheeses and experience the heady delights of drinking Mead and infused gin cocktails.

This year, by popular demand, the food area will be next to the Wine and Beer Garden, so you will be able to enjoy a glass while sampling some of our cuisines ranging from Chinese to Mexican with Italian, French, German, American and South African thrown in.

New additions to the entertainment calendar include the opportunity to take a helicopter flip, and a car show for the -people called Dream Wheels. Drive your own prized Dream Wheels to the Green, and stand a chance to win a lucky draw prize. All Dream Wheels profits go to Stanford Charities.

What greater fun can you have than the chance to test your skills with one of our Racing Snails in our “Ready Steady Slow Snail Race”. Maybe the younger members of the family might like to take part in trying the “Spar Stanford Dip Board Race” where they can win big cash prizes. Paper boat racing on the leivoor, street chalk art, live bird displays and Tussie Mussie workshops will keep you busy and thrilled.

Well there’s still more with the Whale Express Powered Cart rides, Live Music, Face Painting, it goes on and on! And we haven’t forgotten the culture vultures. Local resident galleries welcome you to browse through the local oils, water colours, sculptures and designs, and maybe even take one home to add to your collection.

Putting in a special appearance will be the Iziko Travelling Museum who have come all the way from Cape Town just to make sure that we all have a chance to sample all that the South African Museum has to offer. It’s all happening on Sunday 16 December. So why not brighten up you summer holiday with a visit to Stanford, one of the few Heritage Villages left in South Africa experience it’s Victorian charm, original early settlers village green, meandering river and beautiful Wandelpad plus the Festival. What more could you want for the Family.

Plenty of public parking on the Market Square.
